Lee Banks Natural Championships

        

Welcome to the 2020 Lee Banks Natural Championships (LBNC)

Olympian Lee Banks is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and natural bodybuilding. He is proud to promote LBNC for the fifth year in 2020. This drug-tested physique competition is a “must” for natural athletes who are up to the challenge of competing with the BEST OF THE BEST. It’s also a first-timers dream . . . just ask last year’s Champions.

LBNC is sanctioned by the National Physique Committee (NPC). The NPC is the largest amateur bodybuilding league in the country and the only U.S. amateur league selected as an affiliate by the International Federation of Bodybuilding (IFBB). The IFBB is the largest professional bodybuilding organization in the world and the only road to the pinnacle of physique competitions, Joe Weider’s Olympia.
 
We’re proud to be a part of your fitness journey. If you have questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out to us. . . we’re with you every step of the way!
